Hands Down the best Pale Ale of all I have tasted. This starts out with a wonderful aroma. The Copper color is darker than most PA's I have experienced. May not be a fair comparison since the named it NWPA, it certainly favors the taste of those living from Oregon North!Starts great and finishes even better. It was by a complete fluke I even bought it, a person at working stocking the beer at Safeway in Ballard suggested it. I was smart enough to listen.

Ambrosial

Appearance - Amber, rich, and sultry.

Scent - Smells sexy.

Taste - Flavorful/Complete/Rich.

Mouthfeel - Somewhat medium mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. Excellent, smooth finish. The taste sinks in and almost disappears

Overall - I regularly drink IPAs, but have decided to branch out. Red Chair has a good amount of depth and I would recommend it to anyone, even my IPA brothers. This is a well-rounded, quality tasting beer, made with love, and given a cool, fitting name.

a: Ruby tinted golden; poured with a large creamy head.

S: Caramel malt reminiscent of an amber ale. Earthy, pungent citrus; a bit floral. Very nice.

t: Sweet candy like caramel, beautiful. Flowery, tingly citrus provides great balance. Awesome.

m: Silky smooth.

o: Wow, what a great beer! Perfectly drinkable with incredibly complimentary balance between the malt and hop profiles.
